Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: NON-DEAD for something completely different

What??!!?!?? 50 too much? Bring on 532 Day Jobs in a row, then I'm happy.

Seriously, couldn't agree more. I gotta mix in other artists from completely different gentres from time to time or I risk burnout.

What are some folks favorite "alternative" palate cleansers? I like to go with some harder stuff, like old Van Halen or Aerosmith; maybe some Queensryche to really blast out any rust that may be forming. Of course, Talking Heads or Joe Jackson can be just as effective. Some classic jazz (Bird or Miles) is always nice, but sometimes doesn't have the sonic punch to clear the cobwebs.

Hey SDH - couple of non-Dead things that went up on the Archive not so long ago that I believe would be right up your street. (You may well have latched on to these already.)

Derek Trucks Band

and Keller Williams
http://www.archive.org/details/kw2007-04-14.flac16_avantoneCK-1cards

Both performing at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Florida last month. Keller does a couple of really nice Dead covers and the DTB are in very fine form.

To answer your question: for non-Dead listening I had some old Faces tracks pumping out loud this morning. Excellent stuff!

I love the FACES. The band the Black Crowes have spent two decades trying to be:

And re Derek Trucks - I saw him with Clapton and was just blown away on some of the Dereks & Dominoes' stuff.

Thanks for the heads up on the DTB show, I hadn't yet listened to that one, but now will do so with all haste. Excuse me, but first I've got to crank William Shatner's version of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" from 1968. Sometimes only the classics will do.

I've also been going back to Aerosmith, etc. You can never go wrong with Aerosmith "Rocks." Queesnryche is another good call. Enjoy a lot of the bluegrass & country classics that helped shape a young Jerry. Also like Sirius radio's Vault channel, lots of great album cuts from the 60's & 70's. I've been exposed to so much awesome music by listening. Too bad I don't have an endless bank roll to get the CD's etc....

I cleanse my palate with (in parenthases are the bands I've been cleansing my palate with lately): jazz/funk (Soulive or Glactic in particular), indie rock (Built to Spill, the New Pornographers), and good "jam bands" (Derek Trucks)

However, when my palate REALLY needs cleansing, it's classical music all the way! I've got a whole stack of classical records waiting to be listened to in a month or so, when I will be in a more permanent residence.
